Sadly, the weakest link in this provocative tale is Worthington who never really ignites the screen in quite the same way as Knightley.

Tadjedin brings out the best of her strong cast but all the eyeball-melting beautyon display and the highly polished treatment of the story could have done with a touch of authentic grit.

Worthington is so wooden it's a wonder rubbing up against Mendes doesn't cause him to spontaneously combust.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 27, 2011
Yet both mumblecore and Tadjedin share a certain narcissistic self-reflection that immediately assumes audiences are interested in the lives of their characters.

Forget about sex or adultery -- there isn't enough life in Last Night.

Last Night is quiet and it moves slowly. It's also dense with conversation, so it won't appeal to everyone, but it's a worthwhile (albeit depressing) relationship drama.

an exercise in suspenseful romance that doesn't quite know where to go with its story

It's very nicely shot, and everyone wears lovely clothes, but there's not a lot going on.

Tadjedin banks on the power of telling, familiar moments, betting that viewers will recognize the heartache at the center of a fleeting expression or hurried action. For the most part, her gamble pays off.

It's the sort of movie that thinks cutting between two different stories makes it art. Usually, it feels like an exercise in art. There's a lot of calisthenics but very little beauty or truth or whatever it is the movie is going for.

Tadjedin bounces from one couple to the other with all the logic of a badminton game, but the only revelation is Knightley's nuanced performance.

May 12, 2011
A tedious, two-hour crisis of conscience, presenting a myriad of choices - the best of which is to wait and see this on dvd, if at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
May 11, 2011
It is far beyond the juvenile time-jumping in Blue Valentine or the old-fogey show tunes nostalgia of any random Nora Ephron movie.
May 7, 2011
The glossy Manhattan footage, as hermetic as Woody Allen's rendition of New York, is engagingly expensive-looking at least, but the cast is barely given anything to work with.

May 6, 2011
The movie moves forward in a reductive will-they-or-won't-they-cheat fashion, without much depth or character-driven insight.

Will Michael succumb and prove Joanna correct in her suspicions? Will Alex's French accent conquer all? Do you care? I didn't.

Like certain people, this film is pretty and shallow, and a bit of a bore.
May 6, 2011
It's nice to see an intelligent film about adult relationships and the ways that jealousy and insecurity can shred what is otherwise a solid connection between two people.
May 6, 2011
Massy Tadjedin's intimate directorial debut takes a spare, thoughtful approach to relationships.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 6, 2011
Tadjedin shows an intimate understanding of how couples communicate through ellipses and of all that remains unsaid even amid torrents of angry words.
